This investigation was undertaken at the suggestion of William C. Martin, who realized that the hollow-cathode spectrum of platinum would probably have to be newly measured in order for the Goddard High Resolution Spectrograph to meet its design goals. His encouragement and suggestions throughout the work are gratefully acknowledged. Our photoelectric scans of the Pt/Ne lamp on the 10.7 m spectrograph owe much of their success to suggestions of Richard Deslattes regarding photon counting techniques. We thank him for lending us his expertise as well as much of the equipment required to carry out the experiment. Many of the impurity lines in our list were identified by Jean Blaise. We thank him and Jean-Francois Wyart for making available their new classifications in Pt I and Pt II for inclusion in the atlas. This work was supported in part by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
